3.0 out of 5 stars Strange story!
Firstly the other review here is for a totally different book!!!! The characters of this book are Rebecca Tate and Rafe Danvers.

If someone had told me that the first half and second half of this book had been written by different people I would have to believe them.

The first half: Had me totally spellbound, I thought it had the makings of a...

3.0 out of 5 stars Strange story!, 10 Jan. 2011

This review is from: It Takes A Hero (Avon Romantic Treasure Avon Historical Romance) (Mass Market Paperback)
Firstly the other review here is for a totally different book!!!! The characters of this book are Rebecca Tate and Rafe Danvers.

If someone had told me that the first half and second half of this book had been written by different people I would have to believe them.

The first half: Had me totally spellbound, I thought it had the makings of a fantastic romantic comedy romp. 5 Stars

The second half: To say it went "off" is a massive understatement. It was a muddled, confusing mess. 1 star

I have read A LOT of regency romances and I've never experienced a book quite like this one. A terrible terrible waste of what could have been an amazing book.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not up to standard, 4 Mar. 2014

This review is from: It Takes A Hero (Avon Romantic Treasure Avon Historical Romance) (Mass Market Paperback)
Having read most of this author's books I was dreadfully disappointed in this effort. It seemed to meander through three quarters of the book not really achieving much although I did laugh to myself a few times. The ending was rushed and all the loose ends were tied up within the space of a few pages. I felt that I was being swept along as if the author had decided that she was bored also and could not wait to finish the story· Such a shame as having read the other Danvers novels I had been looking forward to Rafe's. I also found Rebecca to be an annoying heroine first stubborn and abrasive and then suddenly she was in love and throwing herself at Rafe.

All in all not one of this author's best efforts. Would not recommend.

He's a wastrel and a rogue. Lord Dering is the outcast of his family, stripped of his inheritance but not his title. Jarrett refused his father's demand to marry a woman who claimed she carried his child. So now he makes his living playing games for money and women. Who would have thought that he was the perfect man for a mission, but those are just the requirements the mysterious group known as the Black Phoenix needs.

Kate Falshaw is running from a scandalous past. Being a high-tempered actress makes her the perfect candidate to help the Black Phoenix infiltrate the exclusive club known as Paradise. Keeping the men at bay is easy for Kate until her fellow spy comes on the scene with a plan to have a fiery affair to cover up their real purpose for being there. And according to Jarrett in order to be believable, they need to be doing exactly what they say they are. What Kate didn't expect was to find love and understanding in the arms of such a rake.
Jarrett and Kate embark on a dangerous journey to unearth the evidence needed to shut down Paradise that will not only test their mental and physical strength, but the trust that they must give to each other in order to survive. The closer they get to the truth and uncovering a major scandal, the further they fall in love. But when the danger is over and the villains are caught, will Kate and Jarrett be able to explore the love they found while in Paradise or will their ugly pasts prevent them from being happy?
Lynn Kerstan writes a story that is filled with excitement, suspense, passion and a bit of humor. I found the characters charming, and when they embark on an intense mission that tests their very souls, I fell completely in love with them. You will find yourself on the edge of your seat one minute and fanning yourself from the flames of passion the next. Grab a mug of hot cocoa because this is the perfect historical for any romance reader to curl up with. DANGEROUS DECEPTIONS is the perfect beginning to a sensual, mysterious trilogy.
